Le Derwin (Batz-sur-Mer)

Regulars who want to work up an appetite while also doing a bit of sunbathing tend to storm the terrace, perched above the rocks with the ocean within eyesight. Meanwhile, everyone else will split into two camps: those who fall back (either by choice or necessity) into the rustic dining room, and those who choose to wait in line! All that for a taste of some Breton shellfish from La Maison Retailleau in Le Kercabellec (the platter for two features langoustines, velvet crab, tourteau crab, sea snails, grey shrimp, oysters and whelks) or crepes and galettes made with flour from Le Moulin de la Fatigue in Vitré: a simple egg-ham-cheese version; a complète galette made even better with andouille from Vire; not to mention the homemade salted caramel crepes, the chocolate/almond crepe or even those with artisanal jams from the Atelier de Valérie in Batz-sur-Mer. // D.C.

FEELING THIRSTY? Artisan hard apple cider from La Ruaudaie (€10 a bottle) and a dozen wines that tend to be organic: a Muscadet Chéreau Carré (€3.70 a glass) or a Bonnet-Huteau (€17 a bottle), a Sancerre blanc from the Domaine Vacheron (€34)…

PRICE: Galettes €2.60 to €8.20, crepes €2 to €7, shellfish €10 to €59, platters €58 (for two).
